I don't know what the issue is but it is highly unlikely to be related
to the IPA packages, especially for a pre-configured system.

I'd look to see what else was pulled in with the update.

Note too that mixing packages between releases (7.3 and 7.4 in this
case) is not well-tested so you should avoid it when possible.
